, ignores an economy that is struggling, remember, it contracted in the last quarter, and it's projected to contract some more in the first and second quarter, ignored 23 million people who are out of work, ignored the fact that unemployment rates are going to go up. ignored 86 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities. i'm embarrassed about that because the people in office that could do something about it are not doing anything about it. >> herman cain. >> and don't attack rush limbaugh-- >> herman cain you're a successful businessman and you've just made a bottom line argument that i love. if you look back at the last quarter of last year, what do you see? the defense department pulled spending and what happens? the gdp, the economy slows down. now we're approaching a sequester and pull money helter skelter from every skek tore, what do you think it's going to do to our economy. >> juan, you're wrong. >> it's going to hurt america. >> juan, you're dead wrong. those weren't the factors that caused the economy to contract. >> that's what the economy said, herman. >> those are the wrong e
there are more significant. we need a transition to -- there are major economies going and the direction of low carbon. we are pushing the us to go in that direction. there is opportunity for canada to diversify its economy and become low carbon. and europe, they're looking at a directive. there is an opportunity i think to view the developments. is this a momentous change that we are looking at to start driving this? what does that mean for that relationship? i think the economic growth and the job opportunities are much bigger and greater than where we would find the fossil fuels sector. >> rupert murdoch, the guy who owns fox news and the wall street journal, he tweeted against of a keystone and said that we do not need. we have cleaner, natural gas from phrack inc.. -- fracking. what is the implication of this domestic boom? what crowd out the need for energy from canada? what does it mean that the u.s. is talking about being energy independent? >> it was separated into two areas. natural gas and homes. we are looking at surpluses. to say whether it will crowd canadian gas out of the u.s. m
and a lot of damage to the economy. but because it's slower moving, there seems to be less impetus to get a deal done before the march 1st deadline. you're hearing maybe this would all be wrapped up and the continuing spending resolution, if that's not solved by the end of march could result in a government shutdown. there seems to be posturing for negotiating all at once, some time in march. looks like it's possible we'll go past the sequester. >> didn't the gop agree to the sequester deal? and if the gop wanted to stop it, they could have. how do you assess blaming the president for the sequester? >> i'm not sure that's really working out for them because it's true that both sides agreed to this. and now the president is saying, okay, i agreed to this but let's do something about it. the whole idea of the sequester is it would be such a bad thing that neither party would want to go through with it. we can disagree with the logic of even setting this up. but it is true that if you're the party that's refusing to do the negotiation, i think you're the one that looks bad. the fact that bot
for the economy. also something i think senator blunt did not cover but i would like to, there's going to be over 100,000 very low income residents in rural america that will lose their rental assistance that enables them to stay in safe and affordable housing. these families are generally female-headed households, or they're households welledderly or disabled -- welledderly or disabled. so my first question is for you, mr. werfel, if possible. and that would be as these furloughs, etc., take effect, do you anticipate it'll happen on day one, and it just happens in every agency and every department across the board, or will out be phased in -- will it be phased in over time? >> well, there's legal requirements for notice that i think deputy secretary carter mentioned. we have, what we'll see is agencies will start doing a couple of key things. first, furloughing is something that is subject to bargaining. so work is ongoing and will intensify as we approach sequester with union representation to make sure that the manner in which the furloughs are implemented are fair and equitable and etc., so t
industries and economies, the world's largest trade mostly predictable ally and always dependable friend. but some major changes on the horizon could present new challenges for the relationship. let's begin with energy. right now nearly all of canada's oil and gas exports are to the united states. that represents about 10% of u.s. energy needs. but that's about to change. neutrally technologies have unlocked new supplies of crude oil and natural gas from previously unreachable reservoirs across the u.s.. >> after years of talking about, we are finally poised to control our own energy future to disconnect some experts predict the united states will be energy independent by the year 2035. how will that affect canada's 40 billion-dollar oil bench and what will energy independence and for u.s. foreign policy? and what does it mean for pipelines? the canadian government is anxiously awaiting a decision from the white house on the proposed keystone xl pipeline. it would carry out the oil sands nearly 2,000 miles to refineries on the u.s. gulf coast. the secretary of state john kerry who has lo
to happen. the impact on the economy would be terrible for american families. we don't want it. we think it is bad policy. it was designed to be bad policy. that was the whole point. the sequester was written in a way that would assure that congress would never let it happen. >> by putting it off, it could work to your advantage perhaps? >> i think you're misunderstanding or maybe we're not doing a good enough job trying to convince you. we support efforts in congress to buy down the sequester but they should come back and do it tomorrow or come back next week. buy it down so the sequester does not have an immediate effect and congress can get back to work and we can get that $4 trillion in deficit reduction that analysts have called for. we've been working for that. up to $2.7 trillion in deficit reduction has been achieved thus far. our deficit is coming down but we need to do more work to make sure that process continues. that's what we want, that's what the president wants. >> i have a question about cyber crime among other things. what can we expect? >> i think if you're talking a t
of civil society, the economy itself, and the states, depend on that kind of maturity but cannot themselves provided. as well as the stabling commitment of a mother and father. that is what gets the state involved in marriage. it is the social need to promote the stabilizing norms. it is those very stabilizing norms that i say are undermined in principle, and then over time, in practice, as we internalize the idea that marriage is just companionship, that it has no more internal requirements and companionship does, which is a very broader category. note what this highlights. this suggests that, if the norm of sexual complementarity is arbitrary, just a traditional holdover, then so is permanence. so is exclusivity. so is monogamy. why do i say that? very often people say, we can cross those bridges when we get there. you do not have to worry today about polyamorous relationships and so on. i think the logic of those positions does not allow that answer. the logic of their position is that what makes a marriage's emotional union is arbitrary, requiring sexual commentary, which is not essenti
of real threats to our security and our economy. >> ok. our enemies he said. is that china? >> look, i have a standing policy when i talk about china. china is not an enemy of the united states. there are no good reasons for china to become an enemy of the united states. there are non-heroic options to keep the relationship competitive, occasionally, maybe ostentation of, but never having to get to the level of conflict -- maybe, confrontational, i never having to get to the level of conflict. that said, the chinese behavior is very disturbing and it should not be allowed to stand. the president used that taxonomy that you and i just did. there is an espionage danger and then a destructive danger. >> the defense secretary said we could be facing a cyber pearl harbor. do you believe that? >> i do not choose to use that phrase myself. there are cyber dangers, but cyber pearl harbor is just two easy. wect be facing a cyber pearl harbor. why? because we're defenseless in the cyber demain. >> what are we going to do >> i adopt have a good answer so i don't say cyber pearl harber. there are
